I finished this pergola this summer.
It overlooks the pond and backyard.
It is approx 14’ x14’.
The patio beneath it is flagstone .
We hung an old wrought iron fence section on the back as a trellis for clematis.
I have also included a view from the pergola.
The plan is for building Adirondack chairs this summer.

Greg this is a great project and it’s no wonder you built it with this view- it is gorgeous. My wife put this on my to-do list some time ago but I have managed to find other projects to work on. But if I had a view like this I can guarantee I would have already finished it.

Thanks for sharing.

A nice spot to go bass fishing. Put your feet up and fling the rod.
